Duncan Christian School’s junior girls volleyball team improved steadily over the course of the B.C. Christian tournament hosted by Mennonite Educational Institute last weekend.
The Chargers started off against John Knox Christian, working out some nerves as they lost the first set 25-14 before a much closer 25-19 loss in the second set. Next up was a split against Highroad, with each team winning a set 25-17.
“This was an excellent match for our girls as they began to settle into the tournament and elevate their game,” coaches Roz Campbell and Jess Vanderveen commented.
Stellar serving by Nanaimo Christian proved to be a challenge for the DCS players, but the Nanaimo team’s sportsmanship was appreciated as the Chargers lost 25-8, 25-13.
Highroad came back stronger when the teams met again early Saturday morning, taking both sets this time, 25-13, 25-17. Finally, the Chargers faced Maple Ridge in their final match, a hard-fought 25-15, 25-17 loss for DCS.
“It was amazing to watch how much the girls improved over the course of the weekend,” the coaches said.
